Well, I think that there is a sign of a broken (or at least bent) process and 
that's what I'm trying to expose.  Especially given the ongoing conversations 
over Gantt it seems wrong that ultimately it was rejected due to silence.  
Maybe rejecting the BP was the right decision but the way the decision was made 
was just wrong.

Note that dealing with silence is `really` difficult.  You point out that maybe 
silence means people don't agree with the BP but how do I know?  Maybe it means 
no one has time, maybe no one has an opinion, maybe it got lost in the shuffle, 
maybe I'm being too obnoxious - who knows.  A simple -1 with a one sentence 
explanation would helped a lot.

Nobody is ignoring anyone. There have ongoing conversations about the scheduler 
and Gantt, and those conversations haven't resulted in all the decisions that 
Don would like. That is unfortunate, but it's not a sign of a broken process.
